Oh…those times when our relationships with our friends, spouse’s, family members aren’t going the way we want…and, for different reasons…sometimes it’s because we differ and, it spirals into another place that you wish it hadn’t. But, it does. And, it’s stinky. Similar situations are real and, will continue to “pop up”. And, that’s o.k. Because us Believers have The Spirit within us, which, significantly helps us to work through these times (pretty much vital), ending in resolutions and the ability to move forward, with a smile on our face. “Thank You!”
‘We are called to work for peace and unity through God’s Spirit, donning the garments of gentleness, humility, and patience as we seek God’s healing in our relationships.’ Papa ‘yearns for us to be united, and through His Spirit He can bring His people together – even unexpectedly when we go walking in the park.’
So, now, let’s take it a step further…let’s pretend that we are all believers in ‘what goes around comes around’, and, we’re all doing our best to put out the energy that we would all like to reciprocate…and, let’s close our eyes and visualize what this world would look like if this was reality…
A couple of things to remember when walking with Him…
- keep our relationship with Him healthy through regular communication
- show our appreciation through our words and actions since he demonstrates His love through ‘unexpected encounters’ (as often as we want them)
- listen to others
We have so much to be thankful for, particularly the ‘Bond of Peace’. Let’s unite and, live the GOOD life.
I love you,
Ephesians 4:1 – 6 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
‘Have you experienced an unexpected encounter that revealed God working in a situation? How might you work toward peace and unity today?’
